My “this and that” posts bring together three disparate things. In this one, I’m capturing some whimsical things that have been on my mind recently. Summertime horses, my upcoming trip to France, and fiddling with flat lay photography.
summer show jumping
Every chance I get I either work on horse shows or attend them as a spectator. Once you start noticing the horse industry, you begin to see it everywhere. There is no such thing as an average American horse owner. Horse owners come from all economic backgrounds, own all types of horses for various purposes and live in a variety of places from tiny towns to large cities. In fact, the American Horse Council Federation just came out with a study that might expand your conception of the scope and breadth and economic impact of the horse industry in America. It’s not just for the elite, as many people think.
my burgundy, france inspiration
In just a few days I jet off to Paris, France. I notice that so many of my friends are there right this moment, something I find so interesting. I make my way down to Burgundy for this workshop that makes me so happy to think about. If you are on instagram, make sure you watch @the.flo.show, primarily her instagram stories. The workshop will be at her family home.
Creatives involved in the workshop: Abbie Melle, Australian Photographer @abbie_melle / Laurence Revol, French Fashion Portrait Photographer @laurence.revol / Xanthe Berkeley, British Photographer and Filmmaker @xantheb/ Sarah Diligent, Florist @floribundaroseflorists/ Sophie Bellard, Head Cook and Stylist @sistersjunction/Lucia Braham, Stylist @lucia.b.creative. Organized by filmmaker Flore Vallery-Radot @the.flo.show. Watch the video in Flore’s post below. Just wonderful.
fiddling with flat lay photography
Honestly, I got carried away with some indoor-rainy-weather-photography one day recently and and found myself pulling out my camera, the tripod and fun items. I had some images in mind, wanted to thank some people who have truly done something nice for me. What better way to show my gratitude than in photographs?
